Comments about Bill Farmer

“If you believe Walt Disney’s assertion that “laughter is America’s most important  export,” then Bill Farmer is a national treasure. His endearing humor, expert  insight and approachable warmth continue to consistently engage audiences in memorable fashion. To listen to Bill Farmer is to learn from one of the best in the  business.”

“I have worked with Bill Farmer for many years, both as a presentation panel moderator and on-stage interviewer. Through his appealing personality, approachable demeanor and innate talents as an entertainer, Bill never fails to connect with an audience. His storytelling skills are akin to Garrison Keillor or Tom Bodett with material that is sophisticated enough for adults but appropriate enough for younger audiences. Any event or organization would be lucky to have Bill appear on their marquee.”
